Title
(EN) ELECTRONIC ENCLOSURE WITH NEUTRON SHIELD FOR NUCLEAR IN-CORE APPLICATIONS
(FR) ENCEINTE ÉLECTRONIQUE DOTÉE D'UN ÉCRAN NEUTRONIQUE POUR APPLICATIONS NUCLÉAIRES DANS LE CŒUR
Abstract
(EN)
An enclosure for non-organic electronic components is provided which includes an inner cavity for housing non-organic electronic components and a neutron shielding barrier surrounding the inner cavity and the electronic components housed within the cavity. The barrier is formed from a neutron reflecting material in solid or powdered form and a neutron absorbing material in solid or powdered form. An optional structural support is provided in certain aspects of the enclosure design.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une enceinte destinée à des composants électroniques non organiques qui comprend une cavité interne servant à loger des composants électroniques non organiques et une barrière servant d'écran neutronique entourant la cavité interne et les composants électroniques logés à l'intérieur de la cavité. La barrière est formée d'un matériau réfléchissant les neutrons sous forme solide ou pulvérulente et d'un matériau absorbant les neutrons sous forme solide ou pulvérulente. Un support structural facultatif est utilisé dans certains aspects de la conception de l'enceinte.
